SE Michigan Tuner question.

I have had my Fusion Sport for 2 months now and Im ready for a tuner. I live in SE MI (Ann Arbor) and anyone else who lives in the area what tunes are you running? Thought about Livernois or SSi but unsure. Also anyone that would like to meet up at Milan Dragway pm me.

Id go with Unleashed and an SCT tune. LMS tunes are pretty expensive and all you get is the tune. With an SCT Tuner you also get a full diagnostic tool that can read sensors, clear codes and even upload your own tunes if desired.

What tuner do you have Jayson? Money is no option I just dont want to be buying different tunes. I want to do it right the first time.

I actually just bought an Unleashed Tune with the SCT tuner, but its not installed yet because my car is currently at the dealership.

How much power will the unleashed tune give you? Could you tell a big difference? I would like to run low 13's or high 12's but not sure what its going to take to get there.

Id say you missed the part in my last comment where I said its not installed yet. There really isnt going to be a noticeable performance difference between LMS, Unleashed or any other tuning company. The big difference is going to be the support you get from the company and tools they give you.

Im sorry I did miss that part. I went to the dragway 2 weeks ago on a test and tune wednesday night in 79 degree air and ran a 13.51@101.23. Considering im 6'4 255lbs I thought that was pretty good.

Lots of insight on this forum.
There are guys here that have dipped in to the 12.6s with a tune only.
Albeit with much cooler temps.

The tuner wars have been ongoing for some time.
Luckily, not too much so far on this forum.
You need to decide how involved in the process you want to be.
Data logging point to one camp and plug and play only.. to the other.
Either way, you will be waking up a sleeping "sleeper"

Clinton Township here. I'm going with the Unleashed tune. It's comparable to LMS tune. But what I like better is the price and what jayson said. Plus Torrie from Unleashed is very responsive with revisions via datalogging.
